💛 Pillar of the Community

This week, we continue our new tradition of rewarding for a person who is particularly respectful and influential. This special recognition goes toward someone who serves as an active audience member, offering applause and encouragement to musicians. It is with Great Spirit that I announce our next "Pillar of the Community": @musicandreview.

I am thankful to these two musicians for the friendship they extend throughout this community. Their comments are often deeply meaningful, far beyond the surface-level words of flattery. Their words are the kind that build real relationships. I feel true friendship in them. As a special recognition, we are pinning their post at the top of our community page.
